Alexandria, VA – The West Potomac High School Athletic Department and the Wolverine Athletic Booster Club have partnered to create the Wolverine Nation Virtual 5K. This virtual race will open on August 22 and run through September 7. Runners/walkers may complete a course of their choosing anytime during the race window. Funds raised will support the athletic programs with the purchase of PPE and other safety items for West Potomac athletes.
As the WABC explained, “The pandemic has had a dramatic impact on every aspect of our daily lives, and missing out on high school athletics has added to our disappointment and frustration. All of our sports programs and athletes have been impacted, and the future is still unclear.
“However, like any great team we are not giving up when we are down, and we are trying something new this summer! We are excited to see our West Potomac community come together to celebrate its love of athletics and athletes.”
The registration fee for the virtual 5K is $30 per person, or $100 for a family of four; the discount for the family of four will apply once four people are registered. Each participant will receive a custom bib and West Potomac Wolverine magnet in the race packet, which will be mailed to participants on a date to be determined.
Runners and walkers can choose their own route for the 5K anytime between Saturday, August 22, and Tuesday, September 8. All fans and friends of the Wolverine Nation are encouraged to get up and move in support of the West Potomac Athletics.
This fundraiser’s proceeds will help support West Potomac athletic programs with the purchase of PPE and other safety items for West Potomac athletes. The goal is to have 500 runners and to raise $10,000 to support athletics at West Potomac.
